124 Via Bethesda - Palm Beach, Florida
Extraordinary, Landmarked, late 1920's Palm Beach estate created by Howard Major in a "Creole" French Classical design. The stately residence, sitting on a lot of approx. 25,200 sq. ft., is finished with natural rusticated quarried coral blocks originating from Cuba both on the entire exterior as well as several important living areas and trim work on both levels inside the home. Black, white and grey Carrera Marble floors seen throughout the home are believed to have come to the New World as ballast in sailing vessels later cut into floor tiles and installed in a convent in Cuba from whence it was recovered and used in few residences in Palm Beach.The formal living room was designed especially to accommodate the beautiful walnut paneling recovered from a 17th century French Chateaux.
